Day at the Capitol provides participants the opportunity to learn about the legislative process, meet with legislators and staff face-to-face, and have a direct impact in the process. This is also an excellent opportunity to forge relationships with legislators which can provide long-lasting benefits beyond this single day. Many members plan to have or have had follow-up meetings with their legislator in their district.
It is important to know that your grassroots activity dovetails with CIOMA’s legislative program and the work done on behalf of CIOMA by our legislative advocates (lobbyists). All of these elements are necessary and are key to making an effective team to promote your perspectives on issues and protect your interests.
Our members and prospective members attend this event because:
This is the perfect opportunity to explain issues troubling your business and your industry to your elected representatives.
You will be learning about other important CIOMA issues and concerns. Be a part of the priority making process.
